Martin Jol has demanded a "response" from Fulham at Manchester next Monday as they bid to avoid a hat-trick of Barclays Premier League defeats for the first time under the Dutchman.
Saturday's 3-0 home humbling by Swansea made it two successive losses for the Cottagers, who had won three in a row before going down at Aston Villa nine days ago.
They have now dropped out of the top 10 but manager Jol was confident they remained on course for a finish in the upper half of the table.
"Of course the top 10 is still on our radar," he said.
"We want to finish as high as possible and I think we had six games here (at Craven Cottage) with no defeats and we did well, so it was a big disappointment.
"We have to pick ourselves up and try to come up with a response against Man United."
